New Mod: Selection Deprioritizer

Postby Anihilnine » 04 Apr 2015, 06:37

V4.0 of this mod is available in the mod vault. Features:

1. Reduces selection priorities for some exotic units like mercies. So if the user selects exotic and regular units ... the selection is automatically filtered to just regular units. So now you won't accidentally send your mercies in with your other air. Exotic unit list: fire beetle, t3 arty, spearhead, sniper bots, corsair, mercy, torp bombers, strat bombers, aircraft carries, strat subs, missile ship, t3 sonar platform.

2. Automatically filters selections by domain (navy, land, air). So if user selects a mixture of unit types then only the first type will be selected. So now you wont accidentally send your air in with your land.

3. The shift key bypasses the mod and selects as per usual

4. Everything above works regardless of selection method. So it applies to drag, double click, shortcut key, etc. So that means the filtration applies all of the time but also the shift-bypass works all of the time.

5. Exposes a bindable shortcut key to turn the mod off on the fly.

6. Works with or without my other mod, Selection Lock, which filters selection based off assistance.

so the selection lock mod do this to? very nice

just a little suggestion:
I like on this game that when you have land army with engies you use drag to select units, you will select only combat units and not engies and if you use drag only on engi you select engi (by same drag like you would select land units)

so it could be like this:
combat units > exotic units > engis

so you have army with combat units,exotic units and engis - you drag and select only combat units
you have army with exotic units and engis - you drag and select only exotic units
and combat units and engies - that how it works now

Sorry I didn't follow that bit... Here's what it does now

If u select normal units, exotics and engies... Only normal gets selected.
If u select exotics and engies ... Only exotics get selected.
Which is what I think is sweet.
